If you like series that explore the darker side of history, then definitely keep an eye out for the upcoming True Terror with Robert Englund. Englund is best known for his role in horror movies, especially Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. So, honestly, he’s the best fit to host this thing.
The series, which released a trailer on the Travel Channel Facebook Page, is described as follows:
“Hidden away in the dark shadows of our nation’s history are tales so terrifying, they must be true. Now, veteran actor and legendary horror movie icon Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger of the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise!) scours news reports of yesteryear to bring viewers twisted tales ripped straight from the headlines in True Terror with Robert Englund. In each episode, Englund uses his ominous tones and creepy charisma to masterfully weave together a trilogy of spine-tingling tales, guided by newspaper accounts and layered with commentary from historians and experts that prove that truth is always stranger than fiction. From flying monsters to creatures in the night, to evil possessions and hauntings, these twisted tales will leave viewers wishing the stories really were only in their dreams.”
It definitely sounds like a wild ride from beginning to end with the trailer invoking an Unsolved Mysteries sort of vibe.
True Terror with Robert Englund will hit the Travel Channel on March 18 at 10/9c.
